That is a pleasant surprise: a good US saison. (Surprising also is its high ABV.)

Taste and smell are nice and full and yeasty, even skunky. It's not a particularly sour beer, but it is really nice and refreshing, and would make a great companion to a lunch of mussels and fries. While lacking the ultimate depth and complexity, and the grassiness, of the Belgian farmhouse ales (and I kind of miss the typical cloudiness of those beers), this comes really, really close--and at two bucks (for a 12 oz. bottle) on the sales table at Derk's it's a steal, of course.

Definitely a keeper, and kudos to the brewery and to Twelve Percent.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: lighter orange color. good clarity. a finger plus of a white head that leaves a lacing around the edge

Smell: huge farmhouse/belgian yeast smell. banana, citrus and bread, very subtle pepper and spice

Taste: opens up with with citrusy and banana along with belgian yeast. slightly bready throughout and ends with a slightly peppery taste.

Mouthfeel: fairly light. extremely dry.

Overall: a complex and tasty beer. probably the driest beer i have had. definitely worth trying more of stillwater's saisons

American saison to the fullest. The bitterness is a bit overwhelming but totally appropriate. For the style the beers dryness maximizes the biterness presence. The beer has a great apperance an Orange hue thats a bit hazy. A very appealing.g beer. Creamy texture wheaty. Low head retention, med high carbonation. A nutty slighty fruity aroma and flavor. Dominant nose is spicyness, black pepper
